Long haired cat and 'ahem' doings

Hi all,

Got a bit of a problem with my cat. Two times in a row now, he has done his business in his tray (He's an indoor cat) scratched around in there after for ages (as he always does) but then comes up with some poo (sorry can't think of another word!!!) stuck to him, which eventually falls off for me to find and quickly dispose of!

Does anybody else have this problem? Should I trim his fur around that area? Poor little Will - soon as it falls off, he starts scratching round it, trying to bury it! Just glad I have wooden floors and not carpet!

Thanks in advance!
Sharon

Is it sticking to his bum? Then yes, I would try trimming the hair shorter... Buddy has a problem with stepping in poop in his litter, and getting it caked in his paws. The only solution i've seen to this, is to pick him up and wash the affected paw(s) in the sink (which he HATES).

I bet he does - Willy stepped in it once, and once I'd caught him (after he ran it round the house) he hated it being washed.

And yes, it sticks to the fur round his bum... so I'll trim away! Thanks!

Scissors and cats make for a scary combination (to me). If you find you can't get enough cut for his comfort, there are professional groomers you can take him to, who will do a "sanitary cut", to trim off his back area. Or if you're pretty confident about it, you can buy a clipper for pets. I saw some at Target a while back.
